These Chinese New Year Sets Look Amazing – And They’ll Be Available Here

Two Chinese New Year sets recently surfaced online and they got a lot of people talking. The biggest question was whether or not they are going to be widely available or if they are going to be exclusives. Well the official is answer is that they are going to be exclusive to the Asia Pacific region which does include Australia.

Availability will be limited but LEGO Australia have confirmed that they will be coming to Myer, David Jones, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne, Dreamworld LEGO Store and other specialty toy stores such as Outer Rim Trading Co (who have confirmed they’ve ordered stock). They will also be available at the Australian online store.

These are officially released January 1st 2019.

Here are the two sets…

80101 Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner – $89.99

80101a

The set features 6 minifigures and some amazing decorative elements.

80102 Dragon Dance $79.99

80102a

This set features 5 minifigures and an internal mechanism to make the dragon dance up and down. Lots of fantastic elements in this such as a new heart shaped tile, new printed eye tile and the 3-leaf plant element in gold. It’s a gorgeous set.

Exclusive Overwatch Omnic Bastion Unveiled

LEGO and Blizzard have both been teasing a LEGO Overwatch theme for a little while now, but today the first set has been announced – and it is a Blizzard exclusive.

75987 Overwatch Omnic Bastion

lego-overwatch-omnic-bastion-75987-01 I really don’t know a lot about the Overwatch franchise so I don’t have an opinion on how the set has been done and how closely it matches to the source material. I can say that it’s a nice looking little mech, particularly the orange.

This set is the first Overwatch product but we do know that more are on the way with minifigures. This particular one is an exclusive that can only be purchased from the Blizzard store. You can find the product page here. The price is $25 USD with postage on top of that.

Check out the additional images below, and if you are an Overwatch player let me know what you think of this.

LEGO Announces New BlockHeadz Theme By Showing 8 You’ll Probably Never Own

LEGO have used their Facebook page to show off a new theme for 2017 – BlockHeadz. They’ve done so by revealing 8 BlockHeadz that look pretty great – the problem is that the 8 they chose to share just happen to be San Diego Comic Con exclusives.

Brickheadz SDCC Batman Joker

BlockHeadz are small brick built characters with exaggerated blocky heads (like a LEGO version of the popular Pop Vinyl toys). The theme will launch in 2017 but there are no details on what the final theme will consist of other than the fact that the BlockHeadz come in pairs. The 8 characters that LEGO shared are all SDCC exclusives.

If LEGO are using Batman, Superman, Iron Man and Captain America in sets that can only be purchased in San Diego then it’s going to be interesting to see what the actual theme looks like.

You can check out all 8 of the exclusives below.

Introducing 71040 Disney Castle

Disney is all about capturing a little bit of magic, and magical is certainly how I’d describe this massive set.

Updated with additional images below.

71040 Disney Castle

Based on the Cinderella Castle at Disney World this long rumoured set features 5 minifigures and over 4000 pieces. Don’t expect this one to be cheap when it arrives in Australia in September (with a possible VIP release in August).

Possible Leaked Details Of 71016 Kwik-E-Mart

We just spotted this image on Facebook, and asked if we could share this with our readers.

Update: We have changed the title of this article to more accurately reflect the details of the leak. See this post for further clarification.

Kwik E Mart

This is a preliminary image, which can be different from the final production model. UPDATE: The image appears to come from a LEGO Ideas submission, and is likely just a placeholder.

As for the price – this does seem quite high based on the picture we can see here, however this could be the New Zealand price. As an example 75060 Slave I is $349.99 in New Zealand and only $299.99 in Australia.
UPDATE: According to a Toys R Us employee, this set is listed in their system at $329.99.

As more information becomes available about this set we will be sure to post it.

Thanks to Mark H for allowing us to share this image.

Expressions Of Interest – Exclusive AFOL Screening Of The LEGO Movie

The-Lego-Movie-Logo-Small

At Bricking Around we are extremely excited for the release of The LEGO Movie, and we think this is a great chance for LEGO fans to get together. We are currently considering organising some special adult only screenings of the film in the luxury of Gold Class. We want to know if that is something our readers would be interested in?

Gold Class screenings would cater for 30 – 40 guests, and cost between $40 – $60 per ticket depending on day, time and any food and drink packages. We have created a survey below to get some feedback on the idea.
